Safety Tips for the Summer

May 31, 2018

The Y is more than a place to preserve your health. At the Y, you can focus on safety with your family whether that’s enrolling your kids in our newly reformatted swim lessons, taking First Aid or CPR training, learning Babysitting 101, or protecting from injury with a wellness orientation.
Summer is a season full of fun, but it can also create added danger along the way. Be safe this summer with these quick tips:
  • Teach your kids water safety around pools and lakes (or enroll them in swim lessons at the Y and we’ll teach them how to be safe)
  • Keep valuables out of sight and locked up tight (like in a locker, glove box, or car trunk) when shopping, watching your kids at the ball fields, or even exercising at the Y
  • Drink plenty of water because the more you sweat the faster dehydration can creep up on you
  • Protect yourself from the sun with plenty of sunscreen, hats, visors, or umbrellas when working in the yard or watching your kiddos play outside
